After publication of the original article [1] the authors spotted an error in the last sentence of the 1st paragraph of “Phylogeny of SARS-CoV-2” in the Main text. This sentence originally stated:

  • In addition, the genus Betacoronavirus is reported to be divided into four lineages (subgenera): Lineage A (subgenus Embecovirus), Lineage B (subgenus Sarbecovirus), Lineage C (subgenus Merbecovirus), and Lineage D (subgenus Nobecovirus) [7, 8].

However, Bat Hp-betaCoV belong to Hibecovirus. Therefore, the corrected sentence reads as followed:

  • In addition, the genus Betacoronavirus is reported to be divided into five subgenera: Sarbecovirus, Hibecovirus, Nobecovirus, Merbecovirus, and Embecovirus [7, 8].

This error also affected Figure 1. The incorrect (Fig. 1) and correct (Fig. 2) version of figure 1 are shown in this correction article. The original article has been updated to rectify the above errors.
